All about the stage

Fabio Aru: "Paris is a bit closer"

interview13.07.2017Stage 12- Pau / Peyragudes

"Passed the finish line, as I didn't do better than third, I looked behind and I saw Chris Froome a bit behind. Calculating quickly, I thought the yellow jersey was mine and I felt a formidable emotion when I got confirmation of it. It's a great satisfaction. I don't want to think of tomorrow because I know since I looked at the route that this is a very dangerous stage. We know from previous stage races that short stages can make some serious damage. Despite their injuries, my team-mates will be on my side to defend the yellow jersey. I'll start tomorrow's stage with the same serenity I had those past few days. Paris is a bit closer."
